Collar Advice, Please . . . .

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, all.

I have a long neck, and am thus going with a 1 7/8" collar height for my custom shirts. I had a question about collar styles that I wanted advice on.

I'm not so happy with the spread collar my current tailor uses (my only grievance), so I was trying to adopt something from images I saw online, like this one:

http://propercloth.com/collar-styles/president-spread-collar

Two questions based on that link, please:

-1- That example sites a 1 9/16" collar height (back) with a 1 1/4" collar band in front. Can anyone guesstimate what I would use for the collar band height in front if I am using 1 7/8" in the back? I assume the front collar band would need to be a bit taller/higher to achieve the same look?

-2- This may be a silly question, but would using a slightly higher/taller collar require the use of longer points, or is that not necessary? Logically, I am thinking that if I raise the collar height, especially in the front, I would need the points to be a bit longer to compensate?

Thank you.

No. You ask the questions there, and one of the thread's resident tailors sort you out.
